Day 5 & 6
After having breakfast in the morning we start with a ride down to the beach where we go swimming with the horses. After this beautiful experience we pass Melissani Cave where you can take a closer look and enjoy the amazing sight. Next we ride to two old villages that have been ruined from an earthquake 1953 (one of the locations from the movie “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin”) where we will have a picnic. From there we continue high up in the mountains (up to 1000 metres) and pass an old cork-oak forest where we have a great view over the country- and seaside to the mainland and to the neighbor islands.
We continue riding to a beautiful secret place in the middle of the forest: a hunting house where we have a campfire (or fireplace inside, depending on the weather) and a barbecue. We spend the evening together with Greek house wine and a meal which is prepared for everybody including vegetarians. We can sleep there in bunk beds.
In the next morning after having breakfast we will ride back home where we pass a village with a 500 years old farm and we will visit an old family church out of cypress wood. Then we will do some sightseeing to an old olive-mill where you have the chance to taste the Greek schnapps Zypero. Furthermore there will be a Greek picnic waiting for us. From there we continue to the Drogarati Cave (of course you have the chance to visit the cave).
The last part of our ride brings us to a beautiful forest with four old water mills and a 600 years old bridge in a canyon. From there we head back home to the stable.
